In a university context, part of the learning process usually has to take place outside the lecture hall. Therefore, this language course is structured according to the Flipped Classroom principle and offers learners the opportunity to acquire content independently and to use this knowledge in the course: They research a topic, deal with various documents (written texts, videos, audio...), reflect on grammar and vocabulary topics. The aim is to use the attendance time for more intensive collaboration and interaction and to fully exploit this potential for learning the Spanish language.
